I've been waiting for a while (I'd guess around twenty minutes) for a new game. Not everyone joined to the ladder is currently in a game, and I haven't played all of them in the last 20 hours. What's going on?

If there are an odd number of players eligible for a game, it won't be able to give everyone a game. I see you're in a game now so I suspect you just got skipped a few times in a row.

I don't think this is the case though. The ONLY two players joined we me and Summer. Neither of us have a game, but we are not being matched.

It doesn't create games straight away, just every 5 minutes.

i was this morning the only one in the ladder together with swimming potato but our match also was just made like 5-6 minutes after he joined the ladder so it's also not every 5 minutes i think.
Before I also had games which just finished and half a minute later i already had a new game in my box so i think it will make games when a other game is finished or when nobody ends a game in a specific time it looks if he can make still some new games or not

I losted 1 point in my rating by winning a game VS PAOLO.
I was 2391 and after the game I'm 2390.

I know that because of is smal rating I can't get point but if I lose point when I lose a game , maybe our confrontation should be blocked by the big difference of rating...or something else...

2390 vs 1200 ---> TrueSkill mean goes down and variation basically does not change.

I didn't t really read the rules... And don t remember stats anyway.

I notice that if I exceptionally lose a game against one of the lowest rank I will lose lot of my rating and when if I win those games I can lose points anyway...

We could integrate a maximum difference of rank between 2 players that block such games. (Games that diminute your rank when u win)

It is not that easy, since it also depends on variation, so the range would be different for every player. Also I am not sure how well can it be implemented since activity on ladder is not perfect and that might block some games. Probably the wisest choice is just to look who is on the ladder at a given time.

When TrueSkill calculates your rank, does it take into account your opponents' ratings or their TrueSkill mean?

I believe TrueSkill mean and the rating is only a function of TS mean + variation, but we'd need Fizzer to confirm since both could be implemented into the algorythm.

The way the ladder matches things up seems weird too. I haven't played Vadas for two days, but instead of me being matched with him (we have around 100-200 point difference), he is matched with Blortis (around 1800 points difference). Seems wrong to me... improving the match up system would be a good idea.
